Lines And Mild Skin Laxity Under The Eyes Respond Well To Fillers & Superficial Peels
Likewise, to address the mild laxity issue, rather than employing deeper peeling agents or jumping to expensive laser treatments, a series of superficial peels (performed between six and eight times at two to three week intervals) would likely freshen and buttress this area. My personal choice would be glycolic acid 70%, which if applied in the office the evening before would permit return to work the following day. Home use of tretinoin and alphahydroxy acid products would make excellent ongoing maintenance therapy, especially in a young person.
Chemical Peel vs Laser for Lower Eyelids
Chemical Peels work but can give variable results and be technician dependent. Be careful that it is not a peel that would risk bleaching the pigment in your skin.
We usually use laser, specifically an Erbium YAG laser with fractional technology. The technology is safe, effective, tunable and predictable.
To be sure what might work best for you, see two or more board certified and experienced plastic surgeons in your area for a full and complete evaluation.
I hope this helps.
Light TCA peel is Okay
